HOUSTON, Texas ( - One game.

After Thursday night's 4-0 win at Houston, one game is now all that separates the No. 15/17 UCF women's soccer team from its first undefeated conference season since 1999.

One game is all that separates the Knights (14-2-2, 7-0-1) from a No. 1 seed in the American Athletic Conference Championship being held on their home turf.

One game is all that separates the team from a regular season title.

If Thursday night's match was any indication, the Knights seem primed to complete the mission.

UCF pounced with two goals in the first six minutes of the match, dashing any hope the Cougars (1-10-3, 0-8-0) had of securing its elusive first win of league play.

In her first start of the season, sophomore forward Taylor Townsend put the Knights on the board with a laser to the upper left off an assist from junior forward Tatiana Coleman.

Twenty-five seconds later, Townsend found freshman Kayla Adamek rushing in from the left side where she chipped in her eighth goal of the year for a 2-0 edge.

UCF opened up the second half with senior Katy Ling's fourth goal of the season. Coleman dribbled the ball from midfield into Cougars territory and crossed the ball into the box for Ling, who squared up to the center of the net for a 3-0 lead.

Coleman added to the scoring barrage in the 63rd minute with a slider in the box off a cross from forward Jennifer Martin, and the Knights went on to seal their eighth shutout of the year and 14th straight unbeaten match.

UCF closes the regular season Sunday at SMU on Sunday at 2 p.m.
